Liberals promise more than $150 million per year in aid to Afghanistan to battle escalating insurgency

WARSAW, Poland — Canada is promising more cash to Afghanistan — while some of its allies plan to keep troops in the country to help it deal with an escalating insurgency.

The Liberal government is renewing more than $150 million per year for aid projects in Afghanistan and to help the country’s security forces. The new money will kick in once Canada’s existing commitment, pledged by the previous Conservative government in 2012, ends next year. It will continue to 2020.

That’s a waste, nothing can help an Islamic state. But I guess Justin had no opportunity for a virtue signalling selfie
